Re: Mobile ladders with platforms as permanent stairs

But like I said, my advisor wanted to quote "section this from regulation that" at the client. Are we being fixated on the "quote act and section part and not looking at the scenario. AFAIK, there is not exact act, regulation or section which quotes '3 points of contact' and so forth, such comments...

Re: COVID 19 - FRA Re-Deployment Advice Needed

Don't suppose you have asked or they have offered any info as to why they keep wanting you to go to do these tasks. Perhaps, they don't get paid if you/ someone doesn't attend, and if no one attends then they may not have the cash flow to front the money as part of the furlough process. In brief, co...

Re: What is essential travel?

We are still looking or expected to attend unless the site says otherwise, accepting that was on Friday and things change rapidly. (Not entirely in agreement with the idea as it includes hotels overnight stay). There are conflicting thoughts, stay away as it’s all okay on site or go because it’s whe...

Re: anyone else despite being the H&S manager - not invidted to be involved in your companies COVID-19 response meetings

Appreciate the idea of the H&S advisor having visit cancelled, but being fair. What is there that they have to do during a visit that could not, at least for a while, be achieved by phone/ Skype. Would their visit really add weight or extra information. Asked out of interest rather than a negative o...

Re: Opinions on moulded earplugs

I’d wMt to know their noise reduction factor and see how that compares to disposables, currently using ones at about 38/39db. Ages ago brought set with a dinky little case that in now use to keep current and unopened spare pair.

Re: Used Diesel Particulate Filters

Looking at the OP, it looks like you are simply transporting them rather than being involved in any refurbishment. Hopefully, the technicians who removed them will have boxed them for transport which should mean you have. No access thevthe filter unless you open the package up. Typically they are mo...

Re: RAC & AutoGlass

Try asking. You’ll probably find they do carry RAs etc with them as some locations may well require them before they are allowed on site. If they are operating in you car park, controlled by you rather than a public parking area, do you have or considered a review of all your contractor controls? By...

Re: Examples of Nearmiss/ is this a nearmiss or incident quiz?

Great idea, I might worry less about the internal NM definitions and be more excited at putting over the message and creating the debate on how to not only get the job done but get the job done safely

Re: Laptop stands

Putting laptop on a stand is quite common in that it raises the screen. It also means you’d want a separate keyboard. Is it just the laptop / screen height or are there other factors.
I might do a quick HSE DSE assessment at the same time

Re: Ladder fun

Why a NO NO?
Angle seems about right, had it had 4 feet on the ground, it’s jammed in place. Might want to think about the stairway usage but can’t see a real alternative as far as the ladder is concerned.

Re: "Self Employed" Workers

I’m sure someone will come with a longer answer. Being “self employed” is often thought of in HMRC terms, but IMHO that’s not enough for H&S. treat them as yours unless contracts say otherwise and even then don’t forget the bit in H&SAWA. About those affected by your business. Being self employed sh...
